Hi,

 

I believe the SIM card slot is in the battery bay.  Remove the battery to access.

 

That Intel 5100 is a wifi card, not a wwan card.  Do you also have a wwan card installed, or is that what you are asking about?

 

Information on both (SIM and wwan card installation) is in the hardware maintenance manual: Hardware Maintenance Manual - T400 & R400

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T400 6475-EN7 model.

It has a SIM card slot in the battery bay.

I have inserted an active GSM SIM card in the SIM card slot.

But my Thinkpad does not show WWAN anywhere.

No undetected devices in Device Manager.

Fn+F5 shows only WiFi and Bluetooth.

My question is does my Thinkpad has a working WWAN card installed?
OR
Is the slot in the battery bay is just an empty slot for the purpose of installing a WWAN card ?

Hi AbhijeetNagawad,

Unfortunately, I do not live in India so I would not know best. However, you can most likely purchase it directly from Lenovo.

You could also try eBay.
